Photo Preview: Santa Monica Place Opens Friday
The dozens of shops may not be fully ready to open this week. The rooftop marketplace may not be ready until next year. But the six fine dining restaurants -- Richard Sandoval's La Sandia and Zengo; Ozumo; Pizza Antica; Sonoma Wine Garden, and Xino -- and the food court will be up and running tomorrow, August 6th, at the revamped Santa Monica Place. There will be massive parking structures, plenty of retail stores, and a swank dining terrace with views of the city. And, of course, more food options in Santa Monica. Preview photos from a recent press event held at the new mall -- if you can still call it that -- after the jump.
